now, comes here to sell president obama's most controversial but yet one of his most significant foreign policy initiatives. this morning, president obama is one vote short of the 34 needed to clench the deal. that means he would have the power to sustain a veto of any congressional move against the nuclear deal. it would freeze as you know iran's capability of building nuclear bombs but not destroy their entire arsenal. two local senators are waking up this morning in support of that deal. the alternative to me is a scenario of uncertainty and likely isolation. finally i will support this agreement despite its flaws because it is the better strategy for the united states to lead a coalesced global community in containing the spread of nuclear weapons. >> i think the agreement as i said enhances our own national security but also enhances the security of israel. >> they're supporting the president as well as their former colleague.
kerry's visit follows intense negotiations with u.s. allies and iranian leaders. kerry says if there is no agreement, the u.s. dollar weekends and our allies lose confidence in america. but as you know, the jewish community has been against this deal, believing it will bring iran closer to obtaining a nuclear weapon and endangering israel. their influence weighed heavily on new jersey senators. menendez says he will vote against the plan. but senator booker is still undecided. so secretary kerry is due to speak here at 11:00 this morning. our cameras will be rolling. live outside the constitution center, monique braxton, nbc news news. leaders in philadelphia say they don't thinkç the pope's sp in new york city will take away from his trip to our area. the vatican announced pope francis will greet thousands of people through a procession in
